Compaq Desktop Sr1520NX

Bought a Compaq desktop, SR1520NX, still in its original config. Talked to Compaq tech support and they told me I had 2 banks of mem, each with 2 slots. When I looked at it, WRONG. It only has 1 bank with 2 slots. I wnat to upgrade the mem. It takes PC3200 mem. Right now I have the original 512MB in it. What meme can I put in....pc3200 1gb?

Hi nordicwookie,
The main point here is to match the 512MB already installed into the PC. You can buy from either of these web sites. (Click on the link). This site offers free shipping.

You want 512MB of memory which will give you a total of 1GB.
Though a suggestion if I may. If you are going to run or are running Vista, suggest you go higher. 1.512GB. This is listed on the site. (This is only a suggestion).

Good Luck! nordicwookie

I was changeing the memorey now went to turn back on and it is not comeing on power supply fan runs thats it

Hello Lisa,

Make sure that you are using a compatible RAM. Also make sure that you placed the RAM properly in place. You can try removing it and then replacing it back again, if possible on a different slot.

If it still won't work, tell me if do you hear any beeping sound?

Can't load software

If you can borrow a Microsoft full install CD for the version of Windows that came with your machine, you can do a fresh installation using the product key from the sticker on the computer. You will need to download and install hardware drivers from HP's site and also go through the Windows activation process yourself. This will give you a working computer with Windows, but none of the other applications that came preinstalled. (This isn't always a bad thing. HP systems come with a lot "bloatware" preloaded that you can live without anyway.) Unless you paid extra for an application like MS Office, you won't be missing anything.

Is there any way that i can replace my tower case on my Compaq Presario sr1520nx?

Compaq tends to be rather proprietary in their designs, usually a Compaq motherboard will only fit in a Compaq case, a Compaq power supply will only fit a Compaq case. That said there are exceptions such as hard drives, memory, etc.. If your present case is damaged you would do best to find another of the same model that isn't working and transfer your components.

PC wont go on & beeps...

thats mostlikely one of the wire's for your speakers, printer or any other device yuo have that needs power..
If so that wont help your pc in any way.

I'd untangle and trace the wire back to see where it's coming from to be safe.
Also if your pc is plugged in along with your monitor and you can turn both on and you still get an error, then you have a problem. I'd submit a new question detaling the error or beeps your getting.

How do I make my Compaq SR1520NX wireless?

Well, you can always use the new tecnology and connect you ethernet via your power-line in your house/appartment.

Follow that link and read about it, i link you to the panasonic test results, but there are many many more manufacteres out there.
Its verry verry easy to use, its not expensive, and you wont need any separate cables.

Good luck to you
